Ok fine, but what content is going to be broadcast on these? Do you
think you will get anything content-wise with receivers being A.
PC-based, B. Open source, and C. Build your own -- the content providers
are running the other direction. Plus there's this little issue of
support and return on investment.

Why not just put up a 802.11g antenna on your roof and broadcast
streaming video?
